Open 7 Days

7:30am to 9:30pm

Avoid waiting in an emergency department. Our service is free for everyone, with or without a Medicare card.

The Geelong PPCC is one of 25 facilities announced for Victoria as part of an initiative by the Victorian Government to reduce wait times in hospital emergency departments. GPs and nurses will assess patients on arrival and those requiring it will receive urgent care. Anyone requiring emergency medical care, should still seek help from their local emergency department.

The Geelong PPCC is open 7 days a week – see opening hours above.. It is located in the existing Eastbrooke Health Hub at 75 Roslyn Road Belmont. After 6pm and on weekends, access to the PPCC is from the Corio Street entrance. 

Our healthcare team will triage your concern and provide you with treatment options. This may include direction to your regular GP clinic. We can provide urgent care for injuries and illness, including:

  • Mild to moderate infections
  • Persistent fever
  • Pain when urinating
  • Sprains and suspected minor fractures
  • Acute muscle pain
  • Minor cuts, burns and insect or animal bites
